Episode 7 - Barry MacDonald

June 1, 2018

Welcome to Episode 7 of Beyond the Big Red Truck Podcast!  Today, I share the conversation I had with a good buddy of mine and TSN 1040 radio host, Barry MacDonald or as he’s known on air and to his buddies, BMAC!  From his humble beginning’s at CKWL in Williams Lake to the ground breaking sports highlights show Sports Page and then gracing the airwaves at TSN 1040 as co host on the BMAC, Donnie and the Moj show.  Barry shares highlights from his illustrious broadcasting career,  his ups and downs in mental health while battling with depression for almost 40 years and what he does to live the life he wants, despite these enormous obstacles.  And yes, of course we talk sports!   This is an inspiring and real conversation about how mental illness effects your life but also reflects on how resilient we are as humans, and Barry is truly an amazing human.  I know you will enjoy and thanks for listening!  Brad
